We’ll always recommend anyone coming to Lofoten for the first time to spend at least a week – and even better – two weeks. Depends on how much you’d like to do.
If you like the outdoors Lofoten is just an endless adventure.. Hiking, climbing, kayaking, horseback riding, biking, surfing, fishing, Sea eagle safaries and so on.
If you are into arts Lofoten is famous for it’s attraction to artist and there are many galleries and art shops around. You could spend a whole day in Henningsvær just wandering around small shops, galleries and get good coffee and enjoy the best cinnamon buns ever at the famous café named Lysstøperiet.
If you join a race – arrive the weekend before to enjoy the Lofoten islands, or stay a few of days after.
